Two months after release!

A new breeding mechanic in Pokémon Black and White 2 has been discovered two months after its initial release.

Originally, when the parent Pokémon is capable of having two abilities, the ability that a baby Pokémon received from its mother had a 50% chance of being either ability. In Black and White 2, however, keeping the mother in the first Pokémon slot while carrying the egg offers 80% probability of receiving the ability the mother has, while keeping the parent Pokémon in the second slot while carrying the egg offers an 80% chance of receiving the second ability. This discovery makes it easier on players to grant Pokemon with special abilities.


I would love to know how in Goddish's name they'll explain this ingame. Still, my odds of breeding Illuminate Staryu just dropped by 80%, so yay.

Did they figure out how this interacts with Dream World abilities? Or do they just override this?

They probably won't explain it. In any case, this is good news for people who breed their competitive pokemon.
